Global Covid-19 deaths go past 4-million mark: Reuters study


New York: The Covid-19 pandemic has caused more than 4 million deaths worldwide, according to the tally by agency Reuters, as many countries struggle to procure vaccines to inoculate their populations.

According to the analysis, while the first 2 million-mark was reached in a year, the next two million were reached within just 166 days.

While the number of new cases and deaths have abated in countries like the United States and Britain, several nations have vaccine shortages as the Delta variant becomes the dominant strain around the world.

The top five countries by total number of deaths – the United States, Brazil, India, Russia and Mexico – represent about 50% of all deaths in the world, while Peru, Hungary, Bosnia, the Czech Republic and Gibraltar have the highest death rates when adjusted for population.
